20 Healthy Brunch Ideas to try this Sunday


The classic Sunday Brunch is filled with delicious pastries, decedent casseroles, fresh fruit, and your favourite crusty bread! Brunch is often filled with joy but also comes with a hefty bill of calories. Today we’re taking 20 healthy brunch ideas for you to try this Sunday with friends or family!

When it comes to brunch, there are a few things you need to have. I’ve found healthy alternatives to calorie-heavy pastries like light fruit tarts and break sundaes made with greek yogurt. I’ve found vegan alternatives to classics like French Toast so that everyone can enjoy a brunch classic! Lastly, I’ve got the perfect egg additions like naan pizza topped with runny eggs, or easy-to-make egg, ham & cheese egg cups everyone at the table will love!
